hello,

i will be traveling to yosemite Ntl park between july 25-29th, 2015. i made a reservation for a room for the 25th at a lodge in the park, since i couldn't find an available campground. i am interested in attempting to find a space at camp 4 for the following 3 nights. i was wondering how early i should go there to increase my chance? if somebody experienced in this campground can help me, i will appreciate it.

secondly, i would be interested in hiking through yosemite with a travel companion. i am a 56 year old female academic, originally from turkey, an american for the last 17 years; dedicated to nature, hiking, biking, and camping. looking forward to hearing from the members of this forum.

peace... resmiye

Hi fromaegean,

I can't give you any advice from experience, but here's an interesting page that I found and that I think might be useful: http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/nrcamping.htm.

Hope it helps! :)
